In a slight departure from nail polish, today I have a nail/hand care product review to share! (You might have seen these before in my Polished by KPT Photoelectric mail-time post last month.) They are, of course, the new Polished by KPT Loose Manicure Fizzy Tubes!
(wearing Polished by KPT- Shine Light My Way in this photo)
These are meant as relaxing hand or foot soaks- like a bath bomb! They come packaged in these incredibly cute resealable plastic tubes that remind me of something you'd see in an apothecary shop!
They're currently available in the three scents below:
Scents: Soothing Botanical, Rose, & Lavender.
For the purposes of this review. I'll be demonstrating with the Lavender Fizzy, but all of them smell wonderful! (My favorite is actually the Soothing Botanical- I'm not sure how to explain the scent...definitely botanical with a hint of chamomile?)
Lavender Fizzy Tube:
(I am wearing Sinful Colors- Prosecco in these photos, if you're curious!)
There is a safety seal for freshness which you can see me removing above^. (After the seal is peeled off though, you can always screw the lid back on to save the rest for later!)
These tubes contain 3oz of product, which I think is a generous amount! The instructions say to use two tablespoons per treatment, so that's what I have done. There's definitely enough inside for quite a few uses, just depending on how much you use each time.
Measuring and adding the Fizzy to very warm water:
It immediately bubbles up like a bath bomb would (due to the sodium bicarbonate), and the scent is very fragrant and relaxing!
Dipping my paw:
With the Fizzy dissolved, there is a lot of slipperiness to the feel of the water due to all of the beneficial essential oils these tubes contain (sesame seed oil, rice bran oil, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, almond oil). This is reassuring, because I'm not one to actually soak my hands, nails, or cuticles! When nails become waterlogged they can dry out too much afterward, in my experience. However, this is not just any water, so I feel good about this soothing, oily soak!
The other hand even got in on the action!
The instructions say to soak hands (or feet!) for ten minutes, so that's what I did. I enjoyed smelling the lavender while watching some YouTube videos to pass the time!
When I removed my hands from the water, they were quite soft (but not pruny). It would have been a great time to push back my cuticles, but I'd already done that recently. After drying my hands, I still felt like I needed a light hand cream just to lock in the moisture from the oils.
Another action shot for you!
So much lavender goodness!
Overall, I enjoyed using these Fizzy Tubes! They are all very fragrant, and if you're into aromatherapy at all, you'll probably dig them! I found the scents quite relaxing and very spa-like. My skin and cuticles felt softer after the soak, and I feel like this is a nice step in a manicure routine if you're inclined to soak your hands. Also, innovative packaging!
